Set site collection readonly remotely in SharePoint 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a requirement to set a site collection in read only mode in SharePoint 2007 remotely (not from the SharePoint servers).

    As far as I know there is no web service available to do this. One way I figured out was to set the content database itself read only and it sets all site collections in that database read only. And, I'm not sure if this is supported.

    Could someone tell me if this is possible?

  • I think as long as you have SP2+ for your MOSS 2007, you can set your Database read-only and it was a supported option to make your site collection read-only.

    Having said that check MOSS 2007 product support life cycle as I fear it might have ended already. 

    You will need to take that into consideration for making any changes to your MOSS 2007 farm.
